In 1979, sailmaker Steve Sperry built the first-ever Sperry Tent using his fabric design skills and the materials available in his sail loft, Sperry Sails. Little did he know that this prototype would evolve into a full line of rental tents whose look and feel would create an international revolution in event tents.
Steve’s son, Tim, took over ownership of Sperry Tents and incorporated it separately from Sperry Sails in 1996. Today, Sperry Tents is still a family-owned enterprise, with Sperry Fabric Architecture, helmed by Steve’s other son, Matt, producing the tents and Tim overseeing the provider network both across the country and abroad. And while the company has welcomed new manufacturing technologies and canopy shapes, it continually prioritizes classic, timeless fabric designs.
